A drinking poem

Discussion in 'Random Ramblings' started by tdgill, Aug 26, 2010.

  1. The horse and mule live thirty years
    And nothing know of wines and beers

    The goat and sheep at twenty die
    And never taste of scotch or rye

    The cow drinks water by the ton
    And at eighteen is mostly done

    The dog at fifteen cashes in
    Without the aid of rum or gin

    The cat in milk and water soaks
    And then in twelve short years it croaks

    The modest sober, bone dry hen
    Lays eggs for nogs then dies at ten

    All animals are strictly dry
    They sinless live and early die

    But sinful ginful rumsoaked men
    Survive for three score years and ten!
  2. and another....

    By George Leonard Herter

    Mother's in the kitchen
    Washing out the jugs
    Sister's in the pantry
    Bottling the suds
    Father's in the cellar
    Mixing up the hops
    Johnny's on the front porch
    Watching for the cops
  3. Only one that comes to my mind is said at closing time...

    Throw back your shot and finish your beer.
    Don't care where you go but you can't stay here.

    OH if only it were that easy to get them to leave your HOUSE.
  4. Lol!

    A few from some famous writers:

    Too much work, and no vacation,
    Deserves at least a small libation.
    So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses;
    Work's the curse of the drinking classes.

    Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

    He that eateth well drinketh well,
    he that drinketh well sleepeth well,
    he that sleepeth well sinneth not,
    he that sinneth not goeth straight through Purgatory to Paradise.

    William Lithgow (1582-1645)
    Scottish traveller and author

    Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain,
    With grammar, and nonsense, and learning;
    Good liquor, I stoutly maintain,
    Gives genius better discerning.

    Oliver Goldsmith (1730-1774)
